Cochlear implants bring sound to a silent world

For children born deaf or who lost their hearing at a very young age, cochlear implants are a very viable option to bring sound to an otherwise silent world. The cochlear implant procedure was developed decades ago as a revolutionary innovation to restore hearing and has proven very successful in children. The surgically implanted device allows the transmission of sound beyond any damaged area and basically replaces the inner ear function. Our team works together to develop optimal function during post-implantation and rehabilitation.

Our team uses the most advanced equipment and technology, including image guided sinus surgery, for a range of surgical ENT procedures such as:

  • Adenoidectomy
  • Cleft lip and palate
  • Cochlear implants
  • Ear tubes
  • Eardrum repair
  • Endoscopic sinus surgery
  • Laryngotracheal reconstruction
  • Nasal sinus surgery
  • Otolaryngeal cancer surgery
